    let’s go swimming!
    I’m not a very strong swimmer, but my daughter loves the water so I’m planning to spend a lot of time in the water this summer!

    LET’S GO SWIMMING, please!
    Growing up with a swimming pool in the backyard and another at Grandpa & Grandma’s house, I spent most summer days in a swimsuit. Now that I have to go to a job during the week, it really limits the time I can spend floating in the pool.

  6. says

    LETS GO SWIMMING! When my parents first put me in swimming lessons, long ago, I sat on the side of the pool with my feet in the water for weeks. With some gentle encouragement though, I slowly became more comfortable & finished all of the swimming levels. And now, I love it!

  7. Emma says

    LET’S GO SWIMMING! I swam on the swim team of our neighborhood pool when I was a kid (until age 17). It was a really cheap summer camp for my parents. Don’t swim much these days but I am a Seahawk for life.
